revenue for the government. >> well, a lot of people worry about the many years that japan has been in a slow growth environment, but they've kept interest rates very low in japan, but the problem is, government is too big. that's why japan has not been able to start growing again. and this is the path that the u.s. is certainly on if we don't change that dynamic. >> paul: kim, is there any recognition about this in washington or is it all -- i mean, do you hear any of this discussion or do they really believe, certainly, the white house and the treasury, that tax rates like this don't matter, at that ultimately-- >> no, they do to a degree. if you talk to the officials iran up, come on, so we're going to raise the rates, what is fascinating to put it in the bigger context of the debate about tax revenue, the economists have the static view, you've got x-amounts of capital gains income and you get 20% more tax revenue. >> you don't, because people decide to shelter it. they do their transactions the year before, when the amount is less. and so, all of these numbers that the white ho

. 30,000 american troops are stationed there. japan is preparing for the launch as well, they are deploying service air missiles to shoot down anything that may enter its airspace. joining me now is gordon chang. you say that if this is all true, north korea has a very specific audience. who and why? >> the specific audience would be iran.e. who and why? >> the specific audience would be iran. north korea and iran have been conducting a joint missile development program for at least 15 years. in the beginning of september, they signed a technical cooperation agreement, just yesterday, the kyoto news agency reported that a facility close to the chinese border, they are there for nuclear weapons and missile purposes. we need to keep an eye on north korea's relationship with iran. jenna: not only because it is a weapon, but because it can carry a nuclear warhead -- do i have that right? can you explain it to her audience? reporter: sure. north korea has these weapons. but her rants iran is on the verge of getting them as well. they have had warhead testing, which looks like
is supposed to be about the same. it will go to the south korea, china and japan in anticipation of that, japan today, deploying surface-to-air missiles, radar ships and troops just in case this thing goes off course, martha. martha: we've seen these sort of rattling of sabres before. we've seen some of these attempts fail over the ocean but you never know when they will be able get this right. so the diplomatic reaction to all of this, what is the pushback, greg? >> reporter: as you can imagine the reaction has been strong and negative in. in seoul, south korea ambassadors from that country, from united states, japan, russia, china, meeting with foreign ministry officials. japanese prime minister says we strongly call on north korea to refrain, a little bit of backtracking from china today. in their official media they are saying that perhaps the concerns are exaggerated. all this seems to be a chance once again for the new young leader of north korea, kim jong-un to burnish his image. two weeks from today on december 17th, it is the first anniversary of the death of his father kim jong
's bring in the director of japan studies at the american enterprise institute. thank you for joining us and i thank you for having me. hello, heather. heather: you have this article that you wrote for the national review online. the very first line of your article says this. save yourself a few precious minutes and ignoring everything that the u.s. government says about north korea. so what is going on? >> welcome the truth is we don't know what is going on. we are pretty clueless about north korea. all we know is that when it's time fore holidays and for us to relax, north korea will do something crazy like launching rockets on july 4 or maybe setting up another nuclear test around new year's. you know, we go through these cycles. we assume that one day we are going to get them back to the negotiating table, we try to do that, and then they turn around and they break their promise. we are right back where we started from. my point is that i think we should really stop thinking about what we can do to handle this situation. rather, we should accept that the north koreans control the tab
in working with china as china came out of the cultural revolution. we have worked, basically from japan to australia, in deepening relationships for decades. i think the case has been that over the course of the last decade or so we have been very engaged in critical endeavors in the middle east and south asia. and i think there is a recognition now that as we responsibly wind down some of those commitments, that in many respects the lion's share of the history of the 21st century is going to be written in asia across the board -- strategically, politically, militarily. and the united states wants to be part of that. we are going to be part of that drama that plays out. now, we have stated very clearly that a critical component of that is a close working relationship with china. so when we engage, for instance, burma, we have our own history, our own motivations that are unrelated to other countries. so what we are seeking in our engagement is to underscore the positive-sum realities of what we want to accomplish working together. at every meeting we have with china's interlocutors, we
beyond to east of taiwan and japan and so on, first island chain they call it and they are developing specific capabilities to do that, highly accurate cruise and ballistic missiles that could potentially put our aircraft carriers at risk and building a lot of diesel and nuclear submarines, they have clearly been working on cyber and they have clearly been working on anti-satellite capabilities so those are some of the focused areas in which they are trying to be able to make, take advantage of our vulnerabilities. i worry that if their economy -- well, let me say, i think the only source of legitimacy for that regime is a steadily improving standard of living. if their economy begins to slow down and they can't do that, there is a lot of unrest in china today. i mean just to take one example, in social media, you know, there are thousands and thousands of demonstrations and riots in china every year, many of them in rural areas, well to paraphrase the old ad, it used to be that what happened this the village stayed in the village. >> rose: nobody knew? >> nobody knew, but now, it is
of launches, you know, about 15 years ago, they launched a rocket over japan. it was a surprise to most of us. that occurred just before i took over as the senior intel guy in korea. and we've been watching these developments very, very closely. this is a big deal. ashleigh, this is a big deal. but the arrangement along the peninsula was established close to 50 years ago, as a result of the cold war, and what we need to do, as victor has indicated, is we've got to change the dynamic here. iran is very much a part of the discussion, but not included in what we know as the six-party talks, which are russia, china, north korea, south korea, the united states, and japan. we need to try to change the dynamics here, so that there isn't this provocation, because what you have along the peninsula is quite stark. you have this incredibly robust and modern south korea and this stark, dark nation directly across the dmz. >> victor, who does have influence over pyongyang? >> well, i think for many years, we believed it was the chinese. the chinese are the primary source of food and economic assistance, e
of china, japan, south korea, so what is your feeling, what is meant to have been. did you ask the u.s.. the ec, the south china, the sea of japan is in the 50's, 60's and 70's, all of these countries were internally focused. they were developing their own economies, their own national capacities, you know, their own military is. they're coming on line as a significant power in the 1970's, and it was under him that developed into a significant power. what's happened now is all these countries have developed. and because they have developed, they now have the ability to project power around words into the blue territorial soil that they claim. they didn't have this capacity before. so now we are seeing conflicts about islands in the geographical features that are below water and high tide that we never saw before. people say has everyone gone crazy in east asia? no, every once developed, and now they have military's command there's a conflict in -- and they've developed the navy and air force and there is this conflict and -- there's a conflict of for the geographical space. it's a ba
in australia and france and the uk and happens in japan, but for some reason i don't see them grieving over 20 children that have been slain in their schools. that does come down to a question of our gun problem and gun culture and the way we cope with it. i know the families in this town when they are past their grieving and they never will be, but one of the things people want to do here in newtown united is to give them a platform and a voice and let's hear what they have to say. >> two things you mentioned. newtown united and the goals for the organization. you mentioned having knew or met nancy lanza. can you give impressions of her from meeting her? >> it is a small town and a bunch of us play tuesday night ultimate frisbee in one of the local playing fields. we want to have a beer and we go to this place called my place. you have seen it on the news. nancy was i don't want to say a regular, but she was there and i chatted with her. a seemingly pleasant person and i'm sure she was. that's it. that's how small towns work, right? when i wait and saw i knew a number of people who lost a lov

in the region. japan deploying patriot missiles. south korea revving up a brand new israeli-made missile defense radar system. both are promising to shoot the thing down if it goes into their area. meanwhile all of this means a lot to the new young leader of north korea, kim jong-un. it is aimed to mark the first anniversary of the death of his father, the former leader of the country, kim jong-il. it was supposed to mark a year to show that the impoverished nation is on its way to be strong and prosperous. we see pongyang magging the message more than it usually does both for the domestic and international audience. my contacts are saying they will call this a success whatever happens. secretary of state hillary clinton here in europe for a nato meeting is also managing her message pretty closely too. she is saying that the u.s. is concerned and she is telling north korea to not even consider this launch. the reason from the u.s. standpoint again, if this is successful, this is the long range intercontinental ballistic missile. it could have a range of 6,000 miles plus. that could put whatever
out from current trends. what's in place will go on forever. we did that with japan 30 years ago. got that one wrong. maybe we shouldn't be extrapolating like this with china. gregg: the other thing that is very conspicuous here is the enormous trade imbalance with china. our trade deficit with china has tripled over the last 10 years. point of fact i just looked it up today. we export 7%. they export 23% to the united states. isn't that a job killer for americans? >> yes it is. there is no question about it. many of the jobs which our fathers and grandfathers had in the united states left a generation ago or 10 years ago, they left for china and that's basic in the relationship between china and the united states economically at this moment. that doesn't change if china becomes the world's number one economy. it might even get worse. gregg: yeah. and china is now overtaken the united states as the world's largest trading partner. >> yes. gregg: we'll talk about that with senator charles grassley coming up next hour. stuart varney, thanks very much. >> thanks, gregg. martha: this whol

is north korea, here is japan, this is the area where the missile took its course. hawaii is about 6,000 kilometers away. you are 3600, 40,000 miles away from the east coast, ask is a little closer than that. you have come up with a scenario that i think is intriguing. you're saying the iranians were there on site when the rocket was launched. >> there are multiple reports from several news organizations right now that where the launch was you had iranian technical experts who have been involved in the missile program in iran. why that is important, the shab missile is based on the typodone2 missile in north korea. the federation of scientists has told us for years that iran has been in bed with north korea sending cash and oil in exchange for their missile technology. bill: they are much closer to reaching the u.s. after something like this. >> yeah, you talk about some of the stuff falling there close to the philippines and so forth. pair in mind a rocket way was launched a couple ever days ago is a multistage rocket. what you're seeing are pieces of the first and second stage. tha

studies that we could find around the world, including a substantial number from japan, and reviewed those studies and combined them using state-of-the-art statistical procedures and came to the conclusion that exposure to video games, violent video games can increase aggressive behavior. >> so professor, what exactly, how does it affect your brain? does it desensitize to you violence? what does watching or playing a video game do to your brain to make you more violent? >> well, there are a number of processes going on, so in the short term, that is right while one is playing the game and for a brief period afterwards, aggressive thoughts are more available. if a provocation occurs in that time period you're more to see it as a provocation and aggressive solutions come to mind. longer term we get changes in attitudes towards using aggressive solutions, changes in how one interprets say ambiguous situations, so you get bumped into say a child and n a lunchroom. those who play a lot of violent video games are more likely to interpret in a bump as intentional and more likely to respond by pus
is the discussion was about the special board of nato countries and those closely aligned, australia, japan, colombia. there are other great democracy that do not be seen as part of the camps. while i would not expect those countries to necessarily sent troops to libya or something like that, i would expect a greater concern for democracy, human rights, especially in those regions, places like zimbabwe and burma. we have not seen them step up take a huge role diplomatically or anything else. is not as leaders of the democratic world, but more as leaders of the developing or emerging economies. that solidarity keeps them from the democratic values that we share. is there a way you can and treat those countries to play a greater role to see themselves more as a democratic power and sharing, and democratic values and making that a higher priority in your own foreign policy? >> the short answer would be yes. all those countries that you have listed, and more, certainly in terms of their economic capacity, compared to some of the smaller democracies, particularly some in the americas that have a
